In November, Attorney General Shapiro said that Pennsylvania had seen “absolutely no evidence of fraud” in the 2020 election.
“Certainly if there was some, we would be on it immediately or our law enforcement partners would be on it immediately,” Shapiro said last month. “I’ve seen a lot of tweets about it, I’ve seen a lot of public statements about it, but we’ve seen absolutely no evidence of it.”

“Something’s wrong with you if you continue to follow this president if you continue to behave in these bizarre ways if you continue to hold yourself out as a legal expert, yet demonstrate day in and day out with your support of this president and his claims, that you don’t know anything about the law,” he said.
